The Seattle Seahawks released quarterback Terrelle Pryor on Friday, according to numerous reports. Pryor, who was vying to be Russell Wilson's backup, is expected to draw immediate interest from St. Louis.
The release of Pryor means that the Seahawks will have veteran Tarvaris Jackson and BJ Daniels as Wilson's backup.
Pryor was a third-round supplemental pick by the Oakland Raiders in 2011. He started nine games for the Raiders last season before losing his job to rookie Matt McGloin. A knee injury kept him out of action of three games. He compiled 576 rushing yards and 1,780 passing yards and seven touchdowns. But he threw 11 interceptions.
The Seahawks sent a seventh-round draft pick to the Raiders for Pryor in April.
Pryor saw plenty of action in the first and final Seahawks' preseason games. In those two games he went 20 of 33 for 271 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He saw limited action in the other two exhibition games.
The Rams lost quarterback Sam Bradford for the season in the third preseason game to an ACL injury. Shaun Hill is the current starter with Austin Davis the backup.
